    Interested in learning the origin of Walkersville. Had relatives in Baltimore area found during a genealogy search. Thanks

    I am interested in tutoring (free) in Math . Beginning
    Algebra or basic Math would be fine.
    I am a retired college professor and taught remedial
    Algebra at Montgomery College.

  4. I’ll be glad to get a contact number of someone at the school board who can direct you. Thanks for the comment:)

    You can call Chris Horn @ 301-644-5057. He is the Science and Math Curriculum Specialist, and I’m told that he would be a good starting point for you to find out about tutoring in the public school system.
